Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Marl and limestone
Site : This vineyard is located on the commune of Volnay, famous for its great red wines among the best in the Côte de Beaune.
The Vintage 2013 : After a very cold winter and a cool and humid spring, the weather became really fine and warm end of July. The sunny weather and the warm temperatures engendered a slow ripening process of the grapes. The harvest commenced mid September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors associated with meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a crunchy texture. Aging in oak casks during 12 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense Aromas of red berry (raspberry) on a hint of spices. Well-balanced and complex on a tight texture. Long aftertase.
Food pairing : Roasted, grilled or marinated meat, game, classical cheeses.
